PA (Cindy) is much more caring and supportive of treatment than the doctor she works under. The doctor is the reason I am looking for a different provider.

I have recommended Dr. Cindy Buchanan to others! She is OUTSTANDING! She is highly knowledgeable and informed, compassionate, easy to talk to and she completely fixed my severe hyperthyroid. I was very sick when I met her, I was hospitalized and near death in truth, but she solved my thyroid problems even when it was resistant to treatment and I am feeling so much better now! I am so grateful to her and thankful for her expertise.

she didn't explain why she thought something might be becoming a problem. and asked me to check how much i was taking i was taking to much and have cut it back , but she didn't explain why it might be dangerous. i looked it up on line and now know to be more careful.

Jun 11, 2019
my experience is always good. it would be a little more helpful if when a patient is checking out the front office staff was always friendly. they were friendly just not the entire time. I do understand everyone has a bad day
Jun 11, 2019
it is not often that I feel like a DR, PA, NP, etc. actually is taking a true interest in my case but that has never been the case with Cindy Buchanan. I feel that when she is discussing my issues with me she is only concentrating on me.

Although "straight 'very good'" seems a bit over, I felt that the treatment/attention I received was top quality.

PA was extremely helpful. Listened carefully to my questions, and clearly explained her answers.
Mar 2, 2019
I love coming to my appointments because the team is so happy and no matter what I've been working on, I feel inspired to do better the next time around and never put down like so many diabetes doctor appointments I've been to before.

She's very insightful and very good at dealing with the questions as they come.
